'Take Me Home, Country Roads' From Southern Raised Bluegrass Band

Take a step back in time as Southern Raised performs a bluegrass rendition of ‘Take Me Home, Country Roads.’

This classic song was written by John Denver back in 1971. After its release, the nostalgic song became an instant hit. Countless covers later, this song has officially cemented itself in musical history. The entire tune is an ode to the great state of West Virginia and you cannot help but picture those scenic skylines as you listen to the lyrics.

“Almost heaven, West Virginia
Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah River
Life is old there, older than the trees
Younger than the mountains, blowing like a breeze”

Siblings Lindsay, Emily and Matt plus their friend Alex, make up the Southern Raised Bluegrass band. The group was raised in the Ozark Mountains and they have blended their traditional music upbringing with multiple genres and their deep-rooted faith. For years, they’ve entertained us with popular covers of songs such as ‘What A Day That Will Be’ and ‘Shenandoah.’

The group describes themselves as creating a ‘Southern Raised trademark sound where classical meets bluegrass and city streets meets country roads. SR has morphed a progressive sound that spans Christian Country/ Bluegrass, Celtic and Classical.’

Today, they are taking on a true country classic with the beloved words of ‘Take Me Home, Country Roads.’ 

“Country roads, take me home
To the place I belong
West Virginia, mountain mama
Take me home, country roads”

This song instantly transports me back in time. Who else feels the same way?
